Jeannie Brooks of Prompton was charged with theft and forgery on Wednesday.
Prosecutors say Brooks worked in the Wayne County Tax Claim Bureau and stole the money over the course of the last year.
Investigators say Brooks took more than $11,000 during that time.
A release from the Wayne County Commissioner's Office indicates that Brooks is no longer a county employee.
She was released on $50,000 unsecured bail in Wayne County.
